Radiation from Japan in the North/northwest?
« on: April 12, 2011, 01:27:34 PM »
We had a sizable downpour for about an hour yesterday. I decided it would be a good time to test a new toy I bought on eBay, a small handheld radiation detector.  After the rain let up a bit, I went outside and used the device to check a puddle of water and the stream coming off the roof into my rain gutters.  It showed a reading of about .1 to .3 mR/hr (milli-Rems per hour.)  Back inside, I reviewed the manual I received with the radiation meter, and it told me that .1 to .3 mR/hr translates to about 330 to 1000 CPM (counts or clicks per minute), meaning the clicks the geiger counter emits.

Then I went to the following site, which told me that normal background radiation, like what we get from the sun and other sources, is between 5 and 60 CPM.  It further states that although radiation levels are random, 100 CPM is unusual, and is the point at which alerts are triggered.  That means my rain water was from five to fifteen times higher than normal.

This is news I really didn't want to hear, although I was expecting it after all the maps of the plumes I've been watching.  Can anybody point out a mistake I might have made? I'd love to be wrong. Even worse news is that it's almost certain to be cesium and even Xenon, because iodine supposedly has only an eight day half life, meaning it would be pretty much gone in three weeks. It's been a month since the explosions in Japan. This little experiment brought it home to my yard (and my garden!)

It is difficult to figure out radiation readings. Whatever the information manual says for that unit is what you have to go by. But,
if it were me, I would have turned it on to get a background reading by just holding it up in the air. [ you probably did that ]
Then I would have grabbed a container of some kind other that a drinking glass........... and filled it with tap water. Then take a reading of
the tap water. Then I would have gone outside with the empty container and filled it with rain water. Then take a reading of that.
What is the reading in the middle of the living room ?  :)
Compare that with what the rain water was..............
one website I looked at said that 1080 counts per minute is about 1mR/hr................. so your reading of .3mR/h would be 1/3rd of
1080 or 360cpm............... but it all depends on what type of particle is being picked up.

KEEP A RUNNING TALLY DAY BY DAY. Wish I had a meter. >:(

Thanks for that Susan. I posted it on Facebook, along with advice to look up these 'trons in Wikipedia: Xenon, Cesium, Iodine 131.  We're getting a sizable dose, to get much worse in the next few days.

Montanabarb please continue to post to us... can you get a meter?
Please stay safe...sorry I don't have a clue how to do that... You might (or we all might) stay indoors on days when these clouds are predicted. When we know for sure we are being exposed as Ed said, time to take the potassium iodide...
On one of the sites you posted there was a real time map and also predictions map of radiation...
All The Best,
Yowbarb

Barb: I don't know yet. I do have a meter. We got rain last night, but by the time I got up all the puddles were gone.  In my last post II probably should have said, "Based on the predictions, we are getting a dose this weekend." I think your area might be better off, but we are only six hundred miles east of Seattle, and most of our weather comes from the Pacific (except in winter when it comes from Alberta. :)

Yowbarb Note: As many Town Hall Members and readers know, there are many opinions, and opposite conclusions published about the amount of radiation which made it to the west coast of the US (and beyond.)

Here are jsut a couple articles, first one from 2013:

The Department of Health continues to work with local and federal partners to monitor for radioactive contamination from the damaged nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Japan. Nothing has been found in Washington that poses a health risk.

As soon as I can, will check our wild caught Alaskan salmon for radioactivity.  I did this about a year ago and got a clean reading, but time is passing, and the underwater plumes continue to spread.
